Carlsberg’s Chinese New Year 2013 Promotion Launch

[Event]

I rarely go over to Ampang. I’m a PJH boy and I hate the traffic there. If I do its to visit one of my best friends or if there’s an event on at The Pool. However this was to be one of the rare occasions which was none of the aforementioned reasons.

Headed over to Bandar Baru Ampang for the launch of Carlsberg Malaysia’s Chinese New Year 2013 promotion on 9 January 2013 with MHB’s Chelsea and Ashley. Already there were MHB’s Andy Kho, Sarah, Nicole Fong while Valerie joined us after work.

We arrived before the event’s programme officially kicked off so we chilled with some beers and tidbits such as traditional Chinese sweets, dried meat, and even roast duck! Everyone was feeling in a rather festive Chinese New Year mood as on hand to entertain us was a traditional Chinese instrumental band.

After last year’s launch which featured a 100 meter flying dragon I was half expecting a 100 meter snake to come slithering along but as Carlsberg Malaysia is pretty dynamic they had other plans in store for us.
